The Critics Choice Association Awards Celebration of Cinema & Television Honoring Black, Latino & AAPI Achievements was an opportunity to see Jamie Foxx. He won the Vanguard award. His speech was particularly emotional and brought tears to some.
After the medical complications he had in April, Foxx appeared in the public for the first time. Jamie admitted that he 'went through some things' “You know, it’s crazy, I couldn’t do that six months ago — I couldn’t actually walk.
I’m not a clone, I’m not a clone. I know a lot of people who were saying I was cloned out there. I want to thank everybody. I’ve been through something, I’ve been through some things."- Foxx said, as quoted by pagesix.com!
Jamie Foxx: I wouldn’t wish what I went through on my worst enemy
Jamie is happy that he got another chance at life, which he wants to take advantage of. He went through difficult moments that he will never forget.
Foxx did not forget to mention the tunnel either. "I cherish every single minute now — it’s different,” he continued. “I wouldn’t wish what I went through on my worst enemy because it’s tough when it’s almost over … when you see the tunnel.
I saw the tunnel — I didn’t see the light”. He learned an important lesson: Now he respects life much more and every day in which he is healthy. Jamie believes that one should never give up the fight. In life, it is necessary to fight to the very end.
“I have a new respect for life. I have a new respect for my art. I watched so many movies and listened to so many songs trying to have the time go by. Don’t give up on your art, man, don’t give up." Foxx did not want to give specific details about his illness, but he emphasized that he had a very difficult experience! “I went through something I thought I would never, ever go through."
